Professor Eddie Kone has been training jiu-jitsu with my family a long time…
Eddie has taken a lot of lessons with, my brothers and me.
He invested a lot of time traveling to take the classes in Brazil and the USA, and now he has his own academy and it’s amazing.

I have been fortunate to become good friends with Professor Eddie Kone and the students of EKBJJ.
Professor Eddie Kone is truly a dedicated martial artist and his desire to create champions and change lives is evident in his students. EKBJJ is doing a lot of great things and you would be crazy not to train there!

Since starting training at EK BJJ I have seen my JIu JItsu knowledge and ability increase massively.
This has been due in no small part to the guidance of Professor Eddie Kone.
I came to the academy as a blue belt and already had a basic understanding of jiu jitsu but training at EK BJJ has given me a far deeper perspective of not just the techniques but the art as a whole.
I would highly recommend training at EK BJJ whatever you are a raw beginner or an active practitioner.

I have known Eddie Kone for good three years now, he is a real gentleman with fantastic BJJ skills and extremely technical, he has a lot to give to the BJJ community.
God bless and good wishes from a friend.

I began training at EKBJJ in London about 2 years ago and immediately noticed something different about Professor Eddie Kone’s academy. The atmosphere was relaxed, welcoming and friendly.
The students are all willing to help and check their ego’s at the door.
Eddie is a fantastic coach who imparts his knowledge freely and always has enough time for everyone and their questions.
Eddie is a black belt under Royler Gracie and teaches the same philosophy of the Gracie family to his students;
Self-defence, control, respect and family.
EKBJJ jiu-jitsu has changed me and my life for the better and I look forward to continuing my journey alongside my brothers and sisters at EKBJJ.

It is very easy to see why EKBJJ is one of the friendliest hotbeds of high level Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and mixed martial arts in London.
Eddie travelled, for many years, all the way to the Gracie family to learn the jiu jitsu they pioneered but what he brought back was much more: the spirit that martial arts training is for you, me and everybody.
I have on occasion travelled over 180 miles just to take a private session with Eddie Kone and highly recommend his academy.
I’ve been training with Eddie Kone for a number of years now in both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.
His style of teaching in both disciplines is unrivalled with regard to technicality and attention to detail.
I would challenge even the most veteran of martial artists to spend just half an hour training with Ed without learning something new. He manages to command every training session within a friendly and relaxed environment whilst never detracting from his professionalism as a truly world class Martial Arts Instructor.

I’ve been training with Professor Eddie Kone for awhile! He’s a great trainer and a fantastic teacher! His enthusiasm for his students and Bjj is second to none.
When you meet him and work with him you can see how much he loves what he does and the people around him. Training at the academy we really are family, and everyone is valued. But we train hard and we train safe!
There’s respect, honor and a real warrior spirit! And that’s down to Eddie and the Atmosphere he has created!

Eddie Kone is one of the most dedicated instructor’s I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and training with.
His attention to details and the principles of both MMA and BJJ are second to none.
After training with Eddie for 6months i fought my first professional MMA fight, during preparation for the fight i dropped 6kg in excess weight.
I would recommend Taking a class at EKBJJ he is a small guy with big technique, you won’t be dissapointed .

I am a Very privileged to have Eddie Kone as my coach. He is simply the best, always teaching and building champions.
Eddie always shows the easiest ways to approach a fight and his methods are tried and tested in the cage and on the mats, anybody can learn from his teaching and training methods.
If you want to be the best you can be spend an hour on the mat’s with Eddie and you will see you have been blind for a long time.
‘I have known Eddie Kone for over ten years and I consider him one of my close personal friends; I have trained with Eddie over the years and have watched him progress to the rank of black belt and was proud to see him being awarded his first stripe on his black belt in February 2012.
Eddie’s passion for teaching jiu jitsu shines through whenever he is teaching and he has worked very hard over the years building up his association and is now reaping the rewards with clubs in the UK, Europe and Brazil. Eddie is always looking to improve his jiu jitsu and in doing so, surrounds himself with world class instructors such as Rafael Lovato Jr, Saulo and Xande Ribeiro, Royce and Royler Gracie to name a few and is always looking to bring the best techniques and concepts back to his academy to share with his students.
Always leading by example, Eddie continues to compete at a high level in both BJJ and MMA and now trains a large number of highly successful competitors in both BJJ and MMA and is very busy teaching seminars at his Academy’s, preparing students for competition and is always on hand to give advice to his students.
I can highly recommend Eddie Kone’s academy and association if you live in the London area, the teaching is of the highest standard and your training will come in leaps and bounds.’
